Over the past few years, we’ve seen the emergence of lifestyle shoes from big brands like Nike and adidas. Yes, they’ve always been there and yes, they’ve always sold well. But over the past few years there’s been a cultural shift among sneakerheads and the inner city youth. Air Jordans still reign supreme, but a large portion of us are wearing shoes like the Nike Roshe Run, the adidas Flux, and the adidas Tubular. The game is changing and a few years from now who knows what the landscape will look like?
With that in mind, the Nike Air Max Tavas has jumped right in, taking bits and pieces from the Roshe Run, as well as past Air Max sneakers, to become what could be Nike’s next step in minimalistic casual shoe design. It features a multi-toned upper with a pure midsole, as well as the infamous Air Max unit. With a heel tab and perforations on the heel, this shoe is looking to mix what made the Roshe Run so special with the traditional look of an Air Max trainer.
With the New Year here, it’s time to step up your game and get rid of the threads that didn’t work for you in ’14. So long as you continue to wear the same kicks, it’ll be impossible for you to find your best look now that the trends are changing. With a new sneaker on the horizon, this is even more important than ever. Before you go out and cop from Champs Sports, which has another dope black and grey colorway of the Air Max Tavas dropping, make sure you have a plan in mind. We’re going to teach you How to Rock the Nike Air Max Tavas.
